Product Description

Even the atheists are realizing that Darwinian evolution is a shell game. Once they let their presuppositions go and look at the matter objectively they start to see the agenda and fallacies behind what is popularly presented. In Darwinian Fairytales, David Stove upends the entire spectrum of evolution - from its foundations through its modern iterations - and, without using biblical supports for his reasoning, attempts to tear down the structure from the inside. While this might not be the best way to refute worldly wisdom, it is at the very least heartening to read about the way non-religious thinkers come at least part way and, while holding no quarter towards an overtly Christian (or in any way religious) perspective, stripping the evolutionary thinkers and writers of the very ammunition that they rely upon, thus leaving them unwittingly defenseless.
NOTE: This book is entrenched in critique of sociobiological dogma, and as such is not the ideal entry-point for students of this issue. Stove assented wholeheartedly to the brilliance of Charles Darwin, but he could not in good conscience let the cracks in the veneer remain unnoticed. The jargon is technical, and the book addresses many genre-specific touchstones that a beginner might be unaware of without a familiarity of the seminal works to which he refers. Also, without a solid scriptural understanding of origins, the casual reader may find himself feeling adrift after reading.

Publisher's Description

Whatever your opinion of ‘Intelligent Design,’ you’ll find Stove’s criticism of what he calls ‘Darwinism’ difficult to stop reading. Stove’s blistering attack on Richard Dawkins’ ‘selfish genes’ and ‘memes’ is unparalleled and unrelenting. A discussion of spiders who mimic bird droppings is alone worth the price of the book. Darwinian Fairytales should be read and pondered by anyone interested in sociobiology, the origin of altruism, and the awesome process of evolution. --Martin Gardner, author of Did Adam and Eve Have Navels?: Debunking Pseudoscience
